Year | Income from Operations |
Net Cash Flow |
Income from Operations |
Net Cash Flow |
||||||
1 | $52,800 | $162,000 | $111,000 | $259,000 | ||||||
2 | 52,800 | 162,000 | 84,000 | 219,000 | ||||||
3 | 52,800 | 162,000 | 42,000 | 154,000 | ||||||
4 | 52,800 | 162,000 | 18,000 | 105,000 | ||||||
5 | 52,800 | 162,000 | 9,000 | 73,000 | ||||||
Total | $264,000 | $810,000 | $264,000 | $810,000 |
Each project requires an investment of $480,000. Straight-line depreciation will be used, and no residual value is expected. The committee has selected a rate of 15% for purposes of the net present value analysis.

Year | 6% | 10% | 12% | 15% | 20% |
1 | 0.943 | 0.909 | 0.893 | 0.870 | 0.833 |
2 | 0.890 | 0.826 | 0.797 | 0.756 | 0.694 |

10 | 0.558 | 0.386 | 0.322 | 0.247 | 0.162 |
Required:
1a. Compute the average rate of return for each investment. If required, round your answer to one decimal place.
Average Rate of Return | |
Warehouse | % |
Tracking Technology | % |
1b. Compute the net present value for each investment. Use the present value of $1 table above. If required, use the minus sign to indicate a negative net present value.
Warehouse | Tracking Technology | |
Present value of net cash flow total | $ | $ |
Less amount to be invested | $ | $ |
Net present value | $ | $ |
2. The warehouse has a Select: larger OR smaller net present value because Select: largerOR smaller cash flows occur earlier in time compared to the tracking technology. Thus, if only one of the two projects can be accepted, the Select:tracking technology OR warehouse would be the more attractive.
